    Moesan, what is the source of your list?

    I see a large number of them that are latinized, others where I feel they may be transcribed erroneously.

    A few notes here:

    The assertion that "autosomal ancient DNA supports an origin from the West" is circular reasoning in my opinion. Autosomal would suggest that, yes, the pre-Celtic population of...

    I think the risk from long covid, and indeed covid-19 in general, is far greater than the risk of myocarditis. Plus, myocarditis can be treated.

    Yeah, I think a broader comparison that also included modern Celtic languages (e.g. Breton, Irish and Welsh) would be useful - having said this, the Brythonic languages in particular have a share of...

    The situation in France is so unfortunate. I'm happy that France has made such progress in vaccination, especially after all this loss of life it would be incomprehensible for me why the...

    Gaulish duxtir and its Germanic counterpart (see English "daughter") is inherited from Proto-Indo-European. See also Greek thygatēr (θυγατηρ) and Persian dokhtar (دختر).

    Poland as an eventual high-income country is very plausible. However, Poland is struggling with a relatively high emigration rate and low birth rate, and most recently with a strong anti-immigrant...

    I have little to add here, since Ygorcs explained it all quite eloquently and detailed.

    Basque is indeed a non-Indo-European language (no doubt about this?). There are loanwords from...

    One point I'd like to make: this discussion has been focusing a lot on genetics, whereas we're actually talking (or should be talking) about a language family. One important point to make is that the...

    The date "3000 years old" in the original post doesn't really make sense to me. Eblaite, an East Semitic language closest related with Akkadian of Mesopotamia, is attested from roughly the later part...

    That author is fooling himself by wishful make-belief. He reads a gibberish that looks like Turkic from the runestone because he wants it to be Turkic. The Möjbro stone, at the upper left, you can...

    As I said before, the product is gibberish. Also the author of that link uses modern (Anatolian!) Turkish which doesn't make any sense. Even then it doesn't really make sense (for example, above it...

    This topic of the Old Turkic script being related with Nordic runes - or even Nordic runes are supposedly readable as Turkic - is an urban legend that refuses to die.

    First:
    - the Runes are the...

    Good work! Your tree is heavily genetics-based (in particular based off Y-DNA phylogeny), and there's some points where one would disagree on linguistic grounds. My main example there would be...

    1) Why is the map horizontally flipped and turned by 90 degrees?


    2) As the others have said (approximately):
    - only the north of Italy had a Celtic presence (you fixed that in the second map)...

    I'd like to make a few points:
    first, "Celts" is originally a linguistic concept. The Celtic language family is part of the Indo-European languages. If we associate the Beaker-Bell culture with the...

    Which part of the Germanic substrate hypothesis? Do you mean the "a substrate language left distinct vocabulary in Proto-Germanic" (probably accurate), "a large share (a third?) the lexicon of...

    The inhabitants of "Iberia" in the Caucasus, like adjacent Colchis, were speakers of (archaic) Georgian. You have a few other languages in the same family (Laz for example). They were unrelated with...

    Two issues:

    First, in a very New York Times matter, the name "Höcke" does not actually rhyme with "Hook-ay": the ö is about the same sound as with English "learn", "bird" and "Germany". The e is...

    Contact with the Celtic languages was extensive (especially common terminology for metallurgy, horsebackriding and warfare), and relatively old (mostly predating Grimm's Law). Wolfram Euler's point...

    The amusing issue is that the earlier authors (Strabo, Ptolemy, Tacitus, Pliny) think of them as two distinct people. For Strabo (book 7, chapter 3), Getai (Γεται) and Dakoi (Δακοι) are synonyms. The...

    Indo-Iranic languages have a much longer attestation, yes (if we include the loanwords in Mitanni, 1400 BC), but you should not equate that automatically with "older". We're talking about Late IE...

    There's more than two words (two words for wheel, at that). You also have words for 'axle' and 'wagon'. Also, bear in mind that words cannot be subjected retroactively to past sound laws (because...
